Letter from the Editor, The Heart of The Southeastern Bride Magazine

Later this week I will start sharing some of the beautiful editorials and real weddings from the newest edition of the magazine, Book 2: In Bloom. Before I do though, I wanted to take a moment to share what I think is so special about The Southeastern Bride. 


Coming into a relationship, and especially preparing for marriage, you bring more than just yourself. You arrive at the door carrying with you a childhood, awkward teen years, a collection of your past loves and hurts, celebrations, and most painful experiences. The full bloom of a relationship lies in an agreement to live emotionally exposed to one another.

Letter From The Editor, Book 2

When I began work on Book 2 I knew two things: I wanted to name the issue after an iconic song and I wanted it’s pages to be filled to the brim with bright and colorful inspiration for every bride. Even as I dubbed the issue “In Bloom” I didn’t realize just how reflective the title was of the work that would be poured into these pages.

Book 2: Cover Reveal

I am so happy to be revealing The Southeastern Bride magazine Book 2: In Bloom cover today!

I knew when I got these images back from Abigail Malone that we had something really really special. They went right along with the theme of the magazine, in bloom, and visually defined so perfectly the words I was working on for the magazine. It was a seamless fit.

Boho Inspired Bridals

We hire photographers to capture those classic and timeless moments on our wedding day, but it is easy to forget why they do what they do in the first place. As I've gotten to know many of the very talented photographers we feature here on a daily basis, one thing is clear; these are artists with true creativity. This inspired shoot, by Brasspenny Photography, is an expression of that creative desire. The muted colors and minimalist details all occurred organically as they dug into and designed the elements of this shoot. Add to that this incredible Rue de Seine Bridal dress, and you have a gorgeous end product.
